Sony has finally confirmed a sequel to Venom, following Tom Hardy’s anti-brief hero’s appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It was revealed at CinemaCon on April 25, 2022, a few months after producer Amy Pascal said the movie was in “planning phases” surrounding Spider-Man: No Way Home’s release.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage director Andy Serkis may or may not return for the threequel. In the past, he has stated that he would be interested: “I mean, yes, I suppose so. It’s an amazing place to have fun.”
Here’s everything you need to know about Venom 3 while we wait for further information to be released.
When will Venom 3 released in theaters?
Although Venom 3 has been confirmed, no release date has been announced as of yet.
Kraven the Hunter (January 13, 2023), Madame Web (July 7, 2023), and El Muerto (January 12, 2024) have already been confirmed for Sony’s Spider-Man world.
Aside from that, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse are scheduled to arrive in theaters in the near future.
Considering the first two films were released in October 2018 and October 2021, if development on Venom 3 begins in 2022, it’s possible that the threequel will be released in theaters in October 2024.
However, that’s just speculation from us at the moment, so stay tuned for further information.
The cast of Venom 3: Who’s returning for Venom 3?
Tom Hardy will reprise his role as Eddie Brock and his alien partner, Venom, in Venom 3 despite the lack of confirmed cast announcements.
As recently as August of this year, Tom Hardy stated that he had signed on for three Venom films. However, even though he appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home, we wouldn’t be surprised if Hardy returned for the third film.
Who else might show up is less certain, but Stephen Graham’s Patrick Mulligan is a possibility. It appeared that he had suffered a significant spine injury when he was chained to a post in the sequel.
In his final seconds on the screen, he was seen with glowing blue eyes and talking about monsters. He is almost certainly going to play Toxin. However, the actor said that “there is a chance in the future” that may be examined.
We don’t know if Michelle Williams will reprise her roles as Ann and She-Venom, but we hope she does. The character of She-Venom, which Williams had indicated interest in playing in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, was not given any additional screen time.
This is something she may explore further in the third film, along with her sometimes-uncooperative fiancé Dan Lewis (Reid Scott). With Dan by her side, we can’t picture Ann returning without him.
In spite of the fact that Venom and Eddie escape at the end of the film, we’re hoping to see more of Peggy Lu in her role as Mrs Chen, the proprietor of the neighborhood convenience store..
Given that Venom bit Woody Harrelson’s head off at the end of the last film, we don’t expect him to return as Cletus Kasady/Carnage.
Similarly, a reappearance for Naomie Harris, who was crushed by falling rubble and a big church bell in Shriek, would be strange, but never say never.
What can we expect from Venom 3?
We don’t know much more about what the threequel has in store for Eddie Brock and Venom other than the fact that he’s a fugitive.
There will always be speculation as to whether or not he’ll ultimately face up against Spider-Man in the future film. Eddie/Venom was briefly taken to the MCU in No Way Home, but he was quickly returned to his home realm.
You can’t rule anything out given that the universe is part of the MCU and that Morbius has its own MCU crossover.
Though Marvel’s Kevin Feige hinted that it wasn’t up to him, the creative teams at both Sony and Marvel seem eager to make it happen “I believe Sony has the last word. There are two Spider-Man characters in Sony’s universe: Deadpool and Venom.”
It’s possible that the third film could be the one where it’s most likely to happen, he said. Hardy and Serkis both said it would happen before Let There Be Carnage was filmed: “Of course, it’s going to happen,” they stated.
“I don’t see why that couldn’t be done if both parties were willing and it was beneficial to both parties. It is something I hope for with all of my heart, and I would do whatever in my power to make it happen, within the bounds of corporate ethics “he stated.
“When it comes to the 100-meter race, it would be silly not to aim for the Olympic Games. That field has my heart.”
It is possible that in the third film, Venom may be drawn into a Sinister Six team-up that Morbius set up in this dimension. The sky’s the limit right now.
